Kinnaird Head Lighthouse
Kinnaird Head Lighthouse
The old lighthouse at Kinnaird Head was built in 1787 inside the walls of a 16th century castle. It was the first lighthouse in mainland Scotland and it finally closed in 1991, replaced by a modern structure. Today it is part of the Scottish Lighthouse Museum and guided tours are offered to museum visitors. In the foreground some of the posts originally used for drying fishing nets have been decorated as an art project.
